The identification and authentication (IA) control family focuses on establishing mechanisms to identify and authenticate users, devices, and entities accessing the system.

Each control within the identification and authentication control family has specific requirements and objectives. These controls address aspects such as user identification, password management, multi-factor authentication, device identification, cryptographic mechanisms, remote access, session management, and more.
